Cloudera Manager - javax.net.ssl.SSLException: Received fatal alert: certificate_unknown

We are trying to create self-signed certificates

when applying the settings in the cloudera manager, it returns the error below in the log "/var/log/cloudera-scm-server/cloudera-scm-server.log":

with the server.jks file a server.cer file is exported

 

with this file server.cer is imported to jssecacerts

 

certificate creation is performed on all hosts at the same time

 

in the end all hosts have the same jssecacerts file

@yagoaparecidoti ,

 

Could explain which steps you took to generate your server.jks file?

hi @araujo 

 

we create server.jsk this way:

 

/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin/keytool -genkeypair -keystore /opt/cloudera/security/pki_2022_v2/$(hostname -f).jks -keyalg RSA -alias $(hostname -f) -dname "CN=$(hostname -f),OU=Pereira,L=Sao Paulo,ST=Sao Paulo,C=BR" -ext san=dns:$(hostname -f) -ext EKU=serverAuth,clientAuth -validity 730 -storepass 'password22@' -keypass 'password22@'

 

so we create the server.cer like this:

 

/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin/keytool -export -alias $(hostname -f) -keystore /opt/cloudera/security/pki_2022_v2/$(hostname -f).jks -rfc -file /opt/cloudera/security/pki_2022_v2/$(hostname -f).cer

 

so we import all server.cer from all hosts to jssecacerts file like this:

 

/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin/keytool -import -file /opt/cloudera/security/pki_2022_v2/server.cer -alias $i -keystore /opt/cloudera/security/pki_2022_v2/jssecacerts -storepass 'password22@'

Are you able to access Cloudera Manager from your browser?

Hi @araujo 

 

yes, normally

Master Collaborator

@yagoaparecidoti ,

 

Is there a correlation between the times when these messages appear in the log and your browser activity?

If all Cloudera Manager tabs in the browser are closed does the error continue to happen?

 

Cheers,

André

Hi @araujo 

after logging into Cloudera Manager, the error already appears.

Master Collaborator

@yagoaparecidoti ,

 

Can you try importing your cluster certificate into your browser and see if the error stops? Make sure the certificate is marked as trusted so that the padlock in the browser is green or doesn't show any alerts.

 

Another thing you can try is to add the following user extensions to your keytool command when creating the self-signed certificate.

-ext KU=digitalSignature,nonRepudiation,keyEncipherment,dataEncipherment

 

Please keep me posted.

 

Cheers,

André
